Be Careful!

Most of us know by now that it is dangerous to download attachments from the internet or from email attachments. That's because sometimes there are malicious content embedded in those attachments which may affect the function of our computers, to say the least.

Despite this knowledge, however, people still persist on downloading files from the internet. This may be due to the desire to get freebies, like movies in File Extension TORRENT. That way, the "freebie" actually cost more than free!

There are also instances when we inadvertently click on some e-mail attachments sent by family, friends or known aquaintances (like File Extension PPS in forwarded mail). Due to the high degree of trust we have for these people, we sometimes fail to check if it was a legitimate e-mail. The safest thing to do before downloading and opening such a file is to ask the sender if he did, in fact, send you a file like that.

It pays to be a little careful, maybe a little paranoid, at times. You never know when that innocuous looking document (but with a File Extension DLL) would wreak havoc on your computer and how much damage it would do in the long run. Fortunately, there are now remedies for such, but then, as with everything, prevention is better than cure.
